Stibnite (With Minor Baryte)
Baia Sprie, Maramures, Romania
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 6.1 x 4.2 cm
Ex. Dr. Peter Bancroft
This old time specimen is uniquely different from most Romanian stibnites because the crystals exhibit much broader spear-shaped form, the classic style you see in old books but so seldom in specimens from the location taken out in the later half of the 1900s. Crystals reach 4 cm in length and nearly all are pristine, with these perfect, textbook terminations. Also, there are a few gemmy, colorless Baryte crystals, to .7 cm across perched on the stibnite crystals (Very nice and unusual!). Superb small cab specimen of this classic old material, and very hard to get today!
